Plagiarism and good grades aren't mutually exclusive.  That's all I wanted to hear.

Tell that to the 6 kids I've busted so far this year plagarizing writing assignment. Heck one of them even tried to pass it on me twice! ^_^

BTW, not to be rude, you misspelled Pharoahs on your sig...unless you did it on purpose, nevermind!

The plagiarism line was an inside joke that a few of the guys will get. Plagiarism is terribly wrong, I don't condone it at all.

Pharoah is actually spelled P-H-A-R-A-O-H. It's A before O. Believe me, I did extensive research before I created that identity package. I didn't want to ruin it all by misspelling the team name. And CCSLC member amare32 (the guy that I did it for) would have told me with the quickness had I made such an error. :D

Mea Culpea. Our spelling book has it my way. Hmm... and people wonder why the American education system is in tatters... :P

A few weeks ago in my Illustrator class at school a few classmates got caught handing in other peoples' work and "changing it up a bit." The work that was copied was copied with permission, but that doesn't make a difference, it's stll plagiarism. They're lucky the teacher's a nice guy and didn't throw them out of class, because he could have easily expelled them. FYI, I wasn't a copier or a copiee, I'm a good boy. :flagcanada:

What they did is the same thing you did - copied someone else's work, changed it up a bit and tried to pass it off as your own. Try to do what you did here in school or the real world and you'll see why it's a big deal.

earlyier a thread i had was shut down because i redid a concept, but i recolloured it put a different logo on it, so whats the big deal i think it should a new rule on the forum that if we see a concept we like we can copy it you just have to reclour it and fix it a bit.

your kidding me, right? you may think my stuff sucks, but for christ's sake at least i thought it up myself!

i see your in high school. it really pisses me off that my tax dollars are being wasted on your education.

I'm not prolific here, and my stuff will never reach the levels of some people here--that's okay--but I do most of my own stuff, and give credit--with permission--when others have helped me out.

When I joined the NABA I designed my own uis. vicfurth cleaned up my unis & posted them--the concept was mine, but the presentation his, and I didn't try to take credit--and thanked him for it. Teh same for my court for the team.

SyPhi also desigend a logo for the team, unsolicited!

So he certainly gets credit as well.

There are some examples on the boards that mix up people's work--but it's all above board and with permission and credit where due.
